A meme, cribbed from Maybe Expectant.


Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?
On the PC at the office, a shot I took of a postcard perfect beach on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua where we went diving in May 07.

At home on the, whatever it came with when I turned it on. God, I should do something about that.

Q. How many televisions you have in your house?
One and it’s dying.
We get about an hour a night out of night but have found that if we don’t turn it on at all during the week, it might go for up to THREE hours on the weekend before it flat lines and blacks out.


Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Glass, lots of glass, from a hideous car wreck I was in at 15.

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
I’m not supposed to be lifting any heavy items as I’m in my TWW…but I’d have to say the 30 lb boxes of kitty litter I picked up an hour before my last IUI.

Q. Have you ever been knocked out?
I was knocked out for my wisdom teeth, that was fun…

Physically, a gang of girls beat me up in high school and I remember seeing stars, but I don’t think I blacked completely out.

Alcohol has knocked me out many, many times.


Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
It would be much more effective in terms of saving for retirement vs. going on vacation!

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I like my first name, hate my last one.
Only Irish names sound like they belong with my first name and I’m not happy with that either, so I don’t know—totally stumped on this one.

Q. What color do you think looks best on you?
Blue, Thailand ocean blue.

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?

Yes, I remember eating take out a number of years ago and as I finished up, I realized that I was one tong lighter on my plastic fork.

Damn, I must’ve been hungry.


Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
Same sex, opposite sex….Sure!

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
Wow, that made me waggle my pinkie around a little bit to see how much I really needed it.

I don’t think I need it that much, so yeah, maybe.

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000?
Blogging Finished.
Show me the money.

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
I’d strip right now.

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Why not!
There’s always water.

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
But my stepfather died of a heart attack before I could take him out.


Q: What is in your left pocket?

Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
It’s fucking hilarious.

Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Carpet and 3 cats?
No thanks! All hardwoods.

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?
Standing Tiger, Crouching Dragon (while shaving)

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
Too many….6?


Q: Last person who texted you?

Q: Last person who called you?

Q: Person you hugged?
The old lady next door, but it wasn’t a good idea because I almost knocked her over.


Q: Number?

Q: Season?
Summer, so I can walk around naked (just in the house folks!
OK, there have been a few nude beaches…).

Q: Color?


Q: Missing someone?
K and my house before the painters came.

Oh some ONE. Oops.

Q: Mood?
Restless and Unfocused.

Q: Listening to?
Wynton Marsalis, the maid vacuuming the office, someone talking louder than both of these things.

Q: Watching?
The computer screen. And the clock.

Q: Worrying about?
Will I stop procrastinating long enough tomorrow to finish this RFP sitting on my desk, how I am going to put my house back together when the painters leave today, what I have to throw away, will anyone buy my shit from Craigslist or should I just take it to Goodwill, should I rent a car to go to IKEA and get started on some serious organization projects or just go to the Container Store down the street, how much is it going to cost me to do that and complete those framing projects that have been in a pile for years, where will K’s next project be, will we be able to go on vacation next month or will she start on another project immediately, are my mom and I going to get along with each other when I visit her in 9 days, and Ummm,

Am I Pregnant YET?????????

Q: Wearing?

Light blue metallic flats, Armani skinny legged jeans, and a sheer, long-sleeved, scoop-necked blue and grey polka dot blouse.


Q: First place you went this morning?
Bruno’s for breakfast of decaf and oatmeal w/ granola and strawberries because the painter was in MY kitchen at 8am.

I never eat breakfast out, not even coffee. It felt so indulgent and decadent to be up early, eating outside, reading the Wall Street Journal and watching everyone hurry by.

Q: What can you not wait to do?
Organize the house.
Go on vacation.

Q: Do you smile often?
Not so much.
I don’t like my smile and it causes wrinkles. Why do something that causes wrinkles when you don’t even like how it makes you look?

Q: Are you a friendly person?
I talk to people in elevators and compliment strangers on their shoes.
I think so.

You don't like your smile? Seriously? I do. So go on, live a long as they're laugh lines, wrinkles are okay (at least that's what I keep telling myself since they seem to just have shown up big time this year!).

Napoleon Dynamite - classic. The area behind my desk in my classroom is all decorated in Napoleon Dynamite stuff. Is it bad that I have that movie memorized?
